Lyrics

Make Your Happiness

Turn off the TV
Open the curtains
Look out the window
Stop all your circlin' 'round
What's bringin' ya down?

Nobody's gonna come try to nd you
Kick down your door
Give you a prize
Fix all your troubles
Try to pull you out

'Cause that ain't the way this two-ring circus works
You gotta give to get to get what's waitin' 'round the curve

You won't find it in some lover's eyes
Some shiny pretty thing you buy
You can run but you won't nd it nowhere else

See the one thing happy people know
It's what you earn not what you're owed
And in-between the heartbreaks and the scars
You gotta make your happiness right where you are

Na na na na...na na na na...na na na
Na...na na na na...na na na
Na...na na na na...na na na na...na na na
Na...na na na na...na na na

Reach out a hand
Lend it to someone
Don't matter who
Just be the one who cares
You'll find a little happy there

Send out a smile it's ok
'Cause it transcends all the fear and hate
And you'll see
You're a little more than half-way there

And the sooner from your easy-chair you realize
The thing we've all been lookin' for has always been inside

You won't find it in some lover's eyes
Some shiny pretty thing you buy
You can run but you won't find it nowhere else

See the one thing happy people know
It's what you earn not what you're owed
And in-between the heartbreaks and the scars
You gotta make your happiness right where you are

Na na na na...na na na na...na na na
Na...na na na na...na na na
Na...na na na na...na na na na...na na na
Na...na na na na...na na na

And the journey of a thousand miles
Ends right when you realize

You won't find it in some lover's eyes
Some shiny pretty thing you buy
You can run but you won't nd it nowhere else

See the one thing happy people know
It's what you earn not what you're owed
And in-between the heartbreaks and the scars
You gotta make your happiness right where you are

Na na na na...na na na na...na na na
Na...na na na na...na na na
Right where you are!
Na...na na na na...na na na na...na na na
Na...na na na na...na na na

Don't you know? Don't you know? It ain't that hard
Na na na na...na na na na...na na na
It ain't that hard
